First Half MicroCap M&A Exceeds $1 billion
The first half of 2016 was a busy one for microcap acquirers listed on the OTC Markets. With a total of 266 transactions exceeding $1.3 billion in total value, many companies have made M&A an integral part of their growth strategies.
The majority of consideration paid by micro-cap acquirers was stock ($777 million or 58%). That's not surprising considering publicly valued and liquid stock is a unique form of consideration available only to public companies. With less access to traditional financing sources, OTC listed issuers usually need to use stock to get transactions done.
These first half calculations include public companies listed on the OTC QX, QB, and PINK tiers with market capitalizations under $300 million.
